I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in North Carolina and Wisconsin with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist and case manager for teens and families in the justice system and Veterans. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, involvement in the justice system, long term incarceration, substance abuse, ADHD, PTSD, life satisfaction, and various forms of abuse and trauma.
My counseling style is very supportive and empowering but I will also always be transparent with what I believe you need to hear. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I seek to reduce the stigma and stress associated with accessing therapy. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, narrative, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I will work hand in hand with you to develop a treatment that works for you as a unique human being with unique needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Ryan is the first person I have talked to for therapy and he has made the experience great
Thank you for all you do! May not seem like much but I’m starting to feel better
He’s been fantastic in helping me break down personal problems.
I have only met with Ryan a couple of times, but I already feel like he is helping me. He is super knowledgeable and relatable. I appreciate all of his insight.
He has been very helpful with a lot of my issues so far. I've only been in this for a week or 2 but I feel like it is helping Angie is given me good ideas to get through each day and each obstacle I have
Ryan is great!
My experience with Ryan so far has been absolutely amazing! He has been very supportive and I really am glad to have him as my counselor. I know I have a long way to go but I know I finally found a counselor that truly does care and will help me work on being a better person!
